The Red Sea Riviera

El Gouna (the lagoon) is a modern resort town on Egypt’s Red Sea, approx. 30 minutes from Hurghada. It’s built along the shore and on small islands, and is known for its lagoons and sandy beaches.

El Gouna specialises in watersports, including scuba diving, windsurfing, kitesurfing, waterskiing and parasailing. There are several beaches, including Zeytuna Beach located on its own island, Mangroovy Beach, Moods Beach, as well as hotel beaches. A network of canals allows many houses to have their own strip of beach.

There are three main areas in El Gouna, Downtown, Tamr Henna Square and the Abu Tig Marina.

There are two, 18-hole championship courses in El Gouna, which offer year round golf, where players can feast their eyes on stunning mountains and endless sea views.

Spacious beaches, excellent winds, and shallow waters brings lots of kitesurfers, including world champions, to El Gouna. There are three marinas and a beautiful harbour which offers the Red Sea’s best service, comfort, and style.

Abu Tig is in a league of its own among Red Sea marinas, both for the high standard of services it provides as well as for its beautiful backdrop.
Red Sea’s first yacht marina opened in 2005 with over 130 berths, all equipped with the latest technology and amenities to make sure that yacht owners have quick and easy access to their vessels.

El Gouna has lots of different venues to explore once the sun goes down.
You can meet friends for a relaxed drink and conversation at a bar, try your luck at the Casino or dance for hours at one of the town's lively nightclubs.

The two main night spots are Kafr el Gouna, (or Downtown), and Abu Tig Marina, which offer an endless choice, from trendy bars to cosy pubs, the Casino, the great open air Palladium disco, beach bars, and a beautiful oasis on the outskirts of the resort to enjoy a typical Bedouin evening. Wherever you choose to party, El Gouna's busy nightlife is sure to keep you out until the early hours of the morning.
